Irises was painted by Vincent van Gogh in 1889 when he just entered the asylum in France. As opposed to some of his later works, it is calmer with a lot less tension. The bright colors and strong outlines make it visually very interesting and coincidentally ideal for a pocket square. The digital image is courtesy of the Getty’s Open Content Program.
Pair it with navy ties like our navy silk-linen glencheck tie and grey suits for a classic look or go bold(er) with a burnt orange or terracotta tie, a brown jacket and beige linen pants.
This silk is exclusively printed for us in Como, Italy. We use a special ink jet for this fabric which results in a lovely crisp and light silk which is just right all year round.
Our selection of pocket squares is entirely hand made from the cutting of the fabric to the sewing of the hand rolled hems in a small workshop in Como, Italy. This family business is around since more than half a century and has already been working for a number of well-known brands.
We offer all our pocket squares in two dimensions. You can choose between 33×33 cm (13″) and 40×40 cm (15.75″). The later is the preferred choice for standard welt breast pockets whereas the former is ideal for smaller patch breast pockets.
